Florodora In Paris

The successful Florodora opening in Paris noted in the NY Times, January 28, 1903. The encored cakewalk mentioned is undoubtedly Tell Me Pretty Maiden.
(note they misspelled the composer's name and call it an operetta). I wonder if a libretto or score survives in French?

  1. Encored several times, eh? Wouldn't it be fun if we occasionally revived that custom, i.e., let the audience know that if they shout loud enough and applaud long enough, we'll actually give them the number again on the spot?
